It is so hard for me to be so far away from my family at times like these. I will miss my grandfather and I am saddened that my children didn't get to see him recently, but I know he loved us and was thinking of us often.

I knew Stan as the chair of the Crosswoods Financial & Insurance committee. His reputation was wonderful and he obviously had a brilliant financial mind. When he spoke everyone listened because he made the difficult easy to understand. The more I was exposed to his thinking and years of dedication to our community, the more I realized how extremely fortunate we as owners were to have him.

Stan and I were very close as brother and sister, even though we didn't see each other often. He had a long, full life, and was a great brother. Carol has told us that we had a lot of similarities in action and word. Being only a year apart, I guess we were more like twins. I loved Stan! and will miss him tremendously.
